When we get there, it’s a let down

When the thing we so crave, desire and fight for happens, then there is often emptiness, nothing, a letdown. All that negative energy we have used to get to it.

The more we fixate our minds on things, especially material things or superficial ones, the more pain and suffering it brings us to get things that we didn’t need and bring us no joy. We simply move onto more pain to get the next thing, hoping that may bring us joy.

It is a repeating process driven by our falsely mind-created self-image, we crave things to fit our made-up story of who we are and think it brings us happiness as it goes with the role we are playing out in our head.

Who we really are is beyond the mind, and does not need anything to bring joy, as deep in our soul there is peace, calm, love and joy always. We are untouchable from the fantasy world that our mind inhabits. The world that most see as normal life!

Just be grateful for all that you have, use your inner energy to be at peace and to go with the flow of each unfolding moment, the universe will bring us what our soul needs and there will be only calm and no suffering, no negative energy fighting for things that are not needed.

One pair of jeans

None of us knows a woman or a man who owns just one pair of jeans or one pair of shoes or one coat or one of almost any item.

Many of us have accumulated spares of almost everything, just in case the item breaks or becomes lost or whatever other reason.

So we work all day to accumulate trinkets to exchange them online or at shopping malls for goods we will probably not really need or use. Even with food, we do the same, buying more than we need or can consume. As much as 1/3 of the average weekly food shop ends up in the bin.

Perhaps if we only had what we really needed, repaired things, shared, used 2nd hand stuff and were more careful with what we consumed, we’d be able to work less or spend more time doing things that matter.

A joyful life will not be found at a shopping mall or a supermarket or in our fridge.

Consume less, live more and own one pair of jeans.
